New Photos: Long Island Collects focuses on significant photographic works created from the 1960s through the present day. Historically, photography has been used as a documentary medium to tell a story, Using the malleable medium of the photograph, artists have often enhanced or staged their works to convey a story, create emotion, or otherwise touch the viewer in a significant manner. This exhibition presents a survey of photographic works from private collectors. Among the artists included in New Photos: Long Island Collects are John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Robert Mapplethorpe, Vic Muniz, Cindy Sherman and William Wegman, among many others.
